Client Testimonials

About The Park Avenue Group


"Park Avenue has become an important strategic partner for our bank. Stacy and her team have played a major role in the building of our senior leadership and sales teams. They have done an outstanding job in learning about our bank and understanding our culture. This has allowed them to select potential candidates for us that are well aligned with our organization."

Thomas M Cornish, Chief Operating Officer of BankUnited

"Park Avenue Group consistently exceeds our expectations, and I consider them a valued partner in the recruiting arena. Stacy and her team have cultivated a deep network of “best in class” candidates, and they’ve successfully sourced several key leadership positions for us.  Most importantly, they took the time to understand our culture and growth aspirations and screened out numerous candidates who might have been successful elsewhere but wouldn’t necessarily fit our needs.   Their market intelligence, integrity, and professionalism are key reasons why they are our go-to partner for senior positions."

John Stephens, President and CEO of Atlantic Coast Bank

"We recently embarked on an executive search and engaged the services of Stacy Stevens and the Park Avenue Group.  Not only were they successful in finding us the perfect candidate they provided superior service throughout the engagement.  The teamwork was outstanding and working with Stacy and Mindy Ballard was both enjoyable and rewarding as they provided suggestions and creative ideas while working hand and hand with us through the process.  I will certainly use their services again and without hesitation refer them to others."
